Skip to comments.Are You BUYING The Bubba Wallace NASCAR Story?
Posted on 06/23/2020 2:50:53 PM PDT by real saxophonist
The only black (biracial) NASCAR driver, Bubba Wallace, was allegedly the victim of a racially motivated stunt. Depending upon results from the FBIs investigation, this incident could register as a hate crime. The story is that someone placed a noose into his garage stall at the Talladega Speedway before the Geico 500 race. The noose was found by one of Wallaces teammates, not Wallace himself. It was given to NASCAR and/or the FBI for further investigation.
Who Is Bubba Wallace?
Bubba Wallace is outspoken on race and the current protests happening across the nation. He drives (or at least, has driven) a car with #BLACKLIVESMATTER emblazoned on the side. Hes also worn a Black Lives Matter shirt to match the car. Just by looking at him, the impression would be that he is sponsored by Black Lives Matter. Wallace also spearheaded the effort to get Confederate flags removed from NASCAR speedways.
As of 12 noon Tuesday, June 23rd, there are no suspects and no leads. That should change very soon because of all the cameras that are around garage stalls. These areas require tight security due to the expensive equipment inside and the cars themselves. If a person gains unauthorized entry into the garage stall, they can manipulate the car to malfunction on the track and make it look like human error. This could cost a driver their life.
Although there are no leads, no videotape from cameras that should be there, and no picture of the actual noose that was found in Bubba Wallaces garage stall, there is no shortage on speculation as to what happened and why. Rumors are floating around that Wallaces team actually found a serpetine belt. Which doesnt make any sense. Then theres rumors of the noose being retaliation against Wallaces stance on racial issues. All conjecture, light on facts.
NASCAR themselves obviously wanted to jump out in front of this case to prevent any perception of racism on their part. So they put on a nice-sized production where they pushed Wallaces car to the front in Talladega before the race. All of the drivers and pit crew were there. Wallace was crying. Richard Petty even came out to give him a hug.
It Feels Like Weve Been Here Before
Bubbas case has obvious parallels to the case of Jussie Smollett. They are both biracial black and white men, they are both high-profile people, and they both are now outspoken on racial issues. Bubba Wallace moreso than Jussie, obviously. Jussie didnt speak much about racial issues before his attempted hate crime hoax. Nonetheless, the parallels are clear and obvious.
Since the two cases are linked, then there will be comparisons. There will also be doubt cast into the minds of many because of how familiar this situation feels. Why get suckered into another phony racial attack again? Just to make another attention-seeker famous? Its far too early to draw that conclusion, but that will be a common thought.
What Happens Now?
Hopefully this alleged incident turns out to be real. Because if it is not, then stories like this may never see the light of day again. At least not until a thorough investigation has concluded. Why would anyone believe a high-profile celebrity who says they are victim of a racial attack when there are so many false allegations from these very same people? All that can happen now is what should have happened from the beginning before the cringey stunt by NASCAR. Lets wait for the facts.
FBI already found the noose was there in 2019, this had nothing to do with this driver
Nope. Don’t think someone else did it. Neither does Jesse Smollett.
It will now be said that have “nooses” in all of the garages was a show of collective racism in NASCAR. It’s coming. Wait and see.
Investigation is now closed.Says that the rope/noose had been sitting in that stall since oct 2019.This has “MADE UP SHIT” all over it.Shame on nascar.
The FBI(Criminal Enterprise) has cleared this up as a misunderstanding, but there has to be More to the Story.
who actually started the hoax?? when was it first reported? to whom and by whom?? Was Bubba in on it?? let’s see all his phone records,email,... Everything!
It’s over. Sundance cracked the case
The FBI couldnt dispute it
I have not watched NASCAR even on TV for many years.
I can’t remember what he said but Bill France Jr. came out with some leftist drivel years ago.
Quote of the day!!
AP sounds sad
My newest theory is that someone on his crew, maybe one of the black members, saw the door pull, thought “Hey, that looks a bit like a noose”, and thought it would be funny to cut it off, hang it over the car, and prank Bubba the next morning. Stupid, silly prank, sure.
But then someone else found it, and now it has all gone too far, and they are scared to death to say anything. If a white guy, they assume if they are caught, they are fired, banned, labeled racist, and will never work again.
If they are black, they will be called the next Jessie Smollett.
It was the pull rope for the garage door. Sigh.
This case will inspire jokes, and NASCAR looks ridiculous. But Bubba Wallace (I had never heard of him) did get name recognition and weepy sympathy from other drivers
No the FBI cut it off as evidence it was still a overhead door pull
Its not even a noose. Its a loop at then of a rope.
Conveniently not seen by Bubba.
Likely a planned/staged hoax by NASCAR insiders with Bubba’s assistance or blessings.
Very convenient the alleged “finder” was not named.
With all kinds of security present somewhere a security camera would have shown uncomfortable facts, and thus not be available
